ICLs are clear lenses surgically implanted into the eye between the lens (the clear lens inside your eye) and the iris (the coloured part of the eye). They do not replace the eye’s natural lens, and you will no longer need visual aids to see clearly. As light passes through the ICL, it properly focuses light onto the retina at the back of the eye.
How the ICL procedure works
We implant ICLs during an outpatient procedure that takes less than 30 minutes. We apply some anaesthetic eye drops to numb your eyes to prevent any pain.
Through a small incision, our eye surgeons insert the ICL into your eye and position it correctly. The incision is designed to heal itself quickly after surgery.
The recovery from ICL surgery is brief, and most patients can resume work and their normal activities as soon as the day after surgery.
